Coming Soon - The Jesus Storybook Bible Deluxe Edition
Awhile back now, we started reading Bible stories at night with Walker, something we've all grown to love...hearing Walker talk about Baby Moses (sometimes also affectionately called Baby Cameron Moses - ah...the world through the eyes of a 2 year old, but I digress!), Old Moses, all the animals on Noah's ark, "Uncle" Joshua at Jericho, the Good Shepherd - makes our hearts sing! As much as we've enjoyed his Little Golden Book Bible - it's taken no time at all to breeze right through it and we've found the NT stories to be a bit more surface-y than we'd like...with that thought in mind, we've casually been on the lookout for a new Bible to use with him...and I do believe we've found it!
Just this week I ran across pre-release info on the deluxe version of the Jesus Storybook Bible - Every story whispers his name and with everything I read, my excitement grew! From the sample pages on their website, not only does it look beautifully illustrated, but wonderfully well-written too! And not only do you get the fabulous hard copy of the book, but it also comes with 3 cds so that children can read along. LOVE IT!
This is what the website has to say about the book: Written for children ages four and up, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the one story underneath all the stories of the Bible and points to the birth of a child, the Rescuer, Jesus. Complete with 44 Bible stories, The Jesus Storybook Bible paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus and invites children to see that he is not only at the center of God’s great story of redemption—he is at the center of their story too. Children and adults alike will be captivated by the beautifully written narrative and the original and unique illustrations by accomplished artist Jago. Lloyd-Jones’ powerful gift of storytelling draws the reader into the greatest adventure of all time in an exciting page-turner that kids (and adults) find hard to put down.
In addition - leading up to the October launch, there are weekly contests going on to promote the book! Head on over to the Jesus Storybook Bible site and check it out! You can pick up 3 pdf pages from the Bible & 2 mp3 stories too so that you can see the quality first-hand....have a feeling this will be under the tree for our little fella this Christmas...if we hold out that long!
